DHS Amnesty in August starts today

COMANCHE COUNTY, Okla._Parents with arrest warrants for overdue child support have the opportunity to pay off their debt without fear of arrest. That's thanks to the department of human services Amnesty in August program.

In Comanche County alone, there are 164 active bench warrants for overdue child support. The entire month of August they will be able to pay off their debts without arrest.

Officials say with school starting back up, August is usually an expensive month for parents and hope this program will help ease some of that stress and help families in need.
